Toll Collection System Upgrade Study

WSP USA is assisting the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority (TIBA) with evaluating the feasibility, costs and benefits of implementing Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) at the Thousand Islands Bridge in Alexandria Bay, NY.

 

Thousand Islands Bridge

We performed an initial feasibility assessment, which determined the business rules and overall feasibility of implementing ETC, and developed a plan for implementing the new ETC system. One objective of this project was to allow E-ZPass® payments at the bridge, improving customer service and coordination with other regional toll collection systems. WSP is developing multiple alternatives for implementing an E-ZPass® compatible ETC system at the Thousand Islands and working with agency staff to evaluate the costs, benefits, and limitations of each alternative so that the best solution for both local customers as well as regional travelers can be chosen. 

As part of this project, our firm is working with agency staff to evaluate existing and proposed ETC market penetration, as well as identifying impacts to discount plans, revenues and toll operations.
